Alcar by itself is a very mild stimulant. As in I hardly notice the difference with it standing alone. However with the addition to green tea extract and caffeine (Which Alcar synergies amazingly with) my mornings are wonderful. I notice that I have lots of energy, everything just seems more beautiful, I am very talkative, and i have a very strong drive to work hard and achieve. All with no crash feeling. Alcar has a half-life of about 4 hours I believe (not 100% positive) so you really get the effects of it for a long time. I strongly suggest against using alcar at night however. As it's the only time I can notice the stimulant effects of Alcar is when I'm trying to sleep.
Primaforce's alcar is of amazing quality for a very reasonable price. One tub should last an entire year. I have not noticed any impurities in their product. What you are getting is 100% pure Acetyl L-Carnitine.
When I first open the ALCAR container it looked like a fairly dry high quality powder... but I've noticed that over time it becomes hard and "rocks" develop, so it seems like moisture from the air is affecting the product over time. So, I agree, a moisture absorbent would be a good addition, but in the mean time if you put about 10+ grams in a smaller container and take your daily dose from that, you can greatly reduce the number of times the main container is exposed to moisture and this seems to help.
A tip I have for you: ALCAR is acidic, so I was scared to mess up my teeth enamel (ALCAR in water tastes like lemon juice in water). So this is a little trick i came up with: buy some vietnamese spring roll rice papers. I use B00437EN2C Fold them into small sections just big enough to hold about 1-2 tiny scoops of the ALCAR (of the given scoop it comes with). Soak the rice paper in water for 10 seconds (i like to put it on a plate or lid to avoid the rice paper from folding when wet), take the rice paper out of the water, then scoop the alcar into the rice paper, and wrap it as it were a dumpling. Then, gulp it down like a pill. Takes practice and a little patience, but your teeth are worth it! Also, because I have no problem with swallowing big pillows ( I often swallow 3-4 big pills at a time with no problem), I can do 2-3 scoops in a single dumpling. If you can't do big pills, you need to make smaller "dumplings" and do it 2-3 times every time. I haven't seen anyone online give this tip, so i think it's safe to claim that I've come up with it. Also, I've read about people scared to mess up their teeth with ALCAR too, so spread the word! :) We shouldn't have to sacrifice our pearly whites for optimum health.
EDIT (6/18/2014): it took me a while, but i realized yet a easier alternative : sip ALCAR (mixed with water) with a straw!
Hope this hopes.
Acetyl L-Carnitine does amazing things for my mood.
I'm an excessively grumpy bastard by nature, I throw some of this in my morning coffee and I find I can the handle the insanity of the workday ever so much better.
Now - I will say this, I live on the (humid) Gulf Coast and once you open the jar - humidity just rushes into it. The first set of pills was no problem to make but after that - the humidity and moisture made it "clump" so that it was very difficult to work with.
